MinimalModbus is an easy-to-use Python module for talking to instruments (slaves) from a computer (master) using the Modbus protocol. Example code includes drivers for Eurotherm and Omega process controllers. The only dependency is the pySerial module. This software supports the ‘Modbus RTU’ serial communication version of the protocol, and is intended for use on Linux, OS X, and Windows platforms. It has been tested with Python2.6, Python2.7, and Python3.2.
JRedis is a high-performance Java client and connector framework and reference implementation for Redis distributed hash key-value database. It will provide both synchronous clients and asynchronous connections for Redis. The connectors will be both passive (non-threaded) and active, to address deployment scenarios and usage requirements.
jmxsh is a fully scriptable command-line JMX client based on Tcl. It is simply a Tcl interpreter powered by Java/Tcl (with command-line history and editing provided by JLine) that has special command-line options for connecting to JMX servers and special Tcl commands for interacting with JMX servers. jmxsh is capable of simultaneously connecting to multiple JMX servers. There's also a "browse mode" for exploring the remote JMX namespace without knowing beforehand the names of MBeans or their properties. jmxsh and all its dependencies are distributed in a self-contained executable jar file for ease of use.
vzhaipd (scoyo's Virtuozzo/OpenVZ HA IP Daemon) is a set of mount/umount Container scripts for Parallels Virtuozzo or OpenVZ that will make sure a HA IP is always present on one of two or more Containers. You can think of it as the poor man's VRRP for Virtuozzo and OpenVZ Containers. Use it for general service availability, software load-balancer failover, etc.
The WebReboot Plugin for Nagios is a suite of commands that can be used within Nagios to monitor a server and take corrective action if necessary via the WebReboot line of products. For example, the plugin can be used to alert you if a host is powered down, versus simply not responding to network requests. Likewise, it can be used to reboot a server if a host fails to respond to ping, or to shut down a server when a critical temperature threshold is exceeded. The commands can be mixed-and-matched with all existing Nagios commands, maximizing total network coverage.
Keywatch is a free, OSGi-based monitoring system that provides the adaptability of a modern monitoring system without being complex or hard to configure. It support agents written in any language, and comes pre-packed with a Perl agent and a set of check scripts. Keywatch also supports Nagios check scripts.
